Die Eroberung der digitalen Welt

Demnächst: Geburtstag.
Also: Sekt - und Mörchen mit Médaillons. Einkaufen bei Karstadt: RosmarinKartoffeln, die "Caviar"Trilogie von Friedrichs und mehr. Schönes Wetter auch noch!

In der Horizon 202 war 1987 HP5. Von Ilford, versteht sich.

The 2016 Christmas Lecture

This year nothing "technical"- just some pictures to show you what I like in analogue photography.


Made with some 1964 Russian print paper in de contemporary Linhof Technika.
Simple, quiet.

Nice gamut, nice atmosphere, very "summery"
This is Тасма ФН 32 behind the lovely soft МИР-10А.

Dutch landscape.
Vèry Dutch.
Orange filter on the Sigma.

I lòve the pastel colours.
KodakGOLD200 in Digibase (hùh?).
And again the Mir 10A - I àm a WA-man.

Here, again, I love the "old" colours and, I think, the "Dutch" atmosphere.

 Above: yes, sometimes I dó some Picasa!

Left: but I'm really addicted to darkroom challenges...

Above: Russia
(Velikij Novgorod).
I love Russia. Bought really nice socks in this little park.


Left: I did some simple macro, this summer. And I like this picturesque picture.
Fujicolor in the Bantam Colorsnap (!)


Yes: made this summer, not a century ago.

Macro again, but this time HiTec: Jupiter 11 on the 21mm tube.
Nice composition.

Nikkormat FT2

A test. Very heavy, this Nikon, but still works fine.

Rübli !

Denn ohne Mörchenkäse kein Weihnachtsgefühl. Und Kaminwürstchen.
Heute Agfa ISI auf der Agfa ISO - Fuji 200 ohne Kassette drin, das geht.

Weihnachtsmarkt ?

Jaaa, vorige Woche auch schon, immer noch nicht richtig in Stimmung, aber mit crêpes, Glühwein und Reibekuchen kommt das schon.
Heute Ektar100 in der Agfa Isola, Kobold Blitz und (sehr) blaue Lämpchen.

Then and now 80


Right: sixties, we still had the trolleybus.

Left: the public baths are a theatre now, the shops are vèry different and the traffic...

The Summer Lecture: Macro

 On Flickr I have an album:
Macro with humble cameras
(Erwin Janssen Ruijs)

Mostly done with 1D, 2D and 3,5D push-ons, others with a tube, on really simple cameras.

I had a lot of fun with them, this summer.


HOWITSDONE: The push-on in my pocket, and a rope with knots at around 35 and 50cm on the camera. Nothing else, simple and quick. No tripod - I'm a sniper. 

The lenses: Agfa1 and 2 Dioptres, they fit on several Agfas: Click and Clack, Iso Rapid and Isola. And also on the 1936 KW Pilot! 
The Russian 2D fits on the Retina Xenon and the Colorsnap, the Shkolnik and the Smena; the 3,5 D is for the old Lubitel 2, but it also goes on the Kodak Duo 620! From the 8mm Quarz I use the F=240 (the 716 is hardly worth the trouble) on that strange T-43 with 39m screw.


With SLR's I simply move towards the subject untill in focus. At at least 5,6 so I can see something...



With the Russian 3.5 on the DUO620 the knots are 23,5 and 29,5 cm to front lens, rather strange.



Picture below: "a rópe?"




3D Stereo with the Iloca: keep the subject simple, because the 3D effect is superproportional, rather chaotic in nature, but also very nice. (Eyes relaxed on inf, concentrate on the ghost pic in the middle.)
